218 - WORKING WITH TWO DIFFERENT KIND OF ANIMALS TOGETHER


Deuteronomy 22:10 -- “You shall not plow with an ox and a donkey together.”

Maimonides explains the object of the commandment: “The prohibition to bring together two species in any kind of work… is only a preventive against the intercourse of two species. For if it were allowed to join such together in any work, we might sometimes also cause their intercourse.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 49
